Mitzvah Day

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/mitzvah_day_20001110

Imagine the possibility of having restricted access to your own religion and culture without even realizing it, whether you attend synagogue and study sessions faithfully or not. Such a phenomenon actually exists, and it's doing its disturbing work in our own Jewish community. I am referring to the inability to read and interpret the Hebrew language - the original mode of communication of the Torah, rabbis, biblical scholars and personas, and thousands of years of Judaism. I call this disability Hebrew/Jewish illiteracy.
